BMW's colour-changing Mini

BMW are working on a Mini that changes colour depending on the mood of its driver.

The vehicle manufacturing company are said to have developed a prototype of the colour-changing car, which they showed off to BMW AG employees at a recent company meeting.

Bloomberg reports that employees also got an insight into two other futuristic models including a self-driving iNext, which has a retractable steering wheel and a Rolls-Royce with sides that swing open to allow an easier entrance and exit of the vehicle.

Andy Warming, Head of the Mini Design Studio, said: "The Mini of the future embodies a totally new form of shared mobility - sustainable, emotional and inspirational. The driving experience forms the centrepiece and is surrounded by other intelligent services."

The company shared their ideas for the future of their vehicles on their website, where they wrote about a "driver being in constant communication with the vehicle in an intuitive and natural way".

They wrote: "The BMW brand epitomises Sheer Driving Pleasure - past, present and into the next 100 years. BMW aims to make this fascinating driving experience even more intense in the future. The driver is in constant communication with the vehicle in an intuitive and natural way. At the same time, the vehicle expands the driver's range of perception and transforms him or her into the "Ultimate Driver" - the best driver they can possibly be. The Companion responds to the driver's personal needs in order to create emotionally-intense experiences.

"The digital intelligence of the BMW VISION NEXT 100 is concentrated in the Companion, which provides the driver with subtle, intuitive assistance in every situation. Perfect connectivity between the user and the surroundings enables the BMW Companion to always provide the right recommendations to meet personal mobility preferences, both during driving and outside the vehicle."
